Duora 6 has a nice feel, light and easy to swing. There’s enough weight in the head to provide a sense of feel in the shot and know where the racket head is moving to. The racket flows well which is a good sign. Clears were good. There’s some lagging of the head when hitting attacking clears, caused by the additional flex in the shaft, but nothing to worry about. My timing had to be adjusted slightly but it doesn’t take long to get used this racket.
Drop shots were good, nice and crisp as expected from a Duora frame. It’s good to be able to hit a few easy, fast drops incorporating slice. The lighter frame allows a few more wristy shots too.
The lighter frame performed as well as can be expected in the smash department. Don’t expect harder smashes although the lighter frame swings well and the extra bend in the shaft will help so many players get a little more out of these shots.
Flat drives were really easy and this is where the racket really makes its mark. There’s no sense of tiring and the racket performs with excellent precision and speed.
